Make Your Own Paper Clocks

You could mix up the traditional 1st anniversary gift of paper with the modern of clocks, creating a paper anniversary clock which would be pretty cool.

All you need is a clock kit which will have the mechanism, hands and numbers (you don't need to use those) and something that you want to attach it on to.

You could make a clock onto an origami heart, their favorite box of cereal, a photo of the two of you or a book. Really anything will work.

Traditional Anniversary Clocks

The original anniversary clocks were named as you only had to wind them up once a year. Quite often clocks were given as a wedding gift so couples would be winding up their clocks on their anniversary.

This gorgeous Crystal Anniversary Clock is available to personalize in store today.

Personalize Your Anniversary Clock

A great way to make your anniversary clock more romantic is to personalize it;

  • You can do this by having a personal photograph as the face. If you use a photo of you both think about where the hands will be as it could end up being more comical than romantic! 
  • Or you can have a message as the face or a copy of your wedding invitation.
  • Adding a romantic quote or poem about time will give it the aaahhh factor, always important when you are buying your anniversary gift. Here are a couple to get you started;

"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity." Henry Van Dyke

"I wish I could turn back the clock. I'd find you sooner and love you longer" Unknown

"For you see, each day I love you more, Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow" Rosemonde Geraud

"My love for you grows stronger by every passing second"

"Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime" Celine Dion

  • A beautiful 1st anniversary present is a sundial - this has to be the oldest type of clock, you can buy these from most home stores and you can personalize with a quote or your names and the date engraved into the stone, or have a brass plaque added.
  • For those who love to travel you could tease your partner with a travel clock and either put a plane ticket or guide book into the clock's case.
